Just picked up our new machine and took it for its first ride. Very Impressive. Considerable improvement over our 2016 1000R Turbo for sure. Our group ride was uneventful until one of the X3 cars all of a sudden quit. No electrical, nothing. So we started to troubleshoot and someone suggested we look at the battery. In order to get to the battery you have to remove the right rear seat, Really?? The book says to lift up the bottom cushion and pull back on it. Oh no! It doesn't mention the small hard rubber piece that has to be removed first... Then, it doesn't mention how to get past the seat adjustment rod... Oh well. The battery is then accessible and we found the screw loose on the post, tightened and we were back in business. When I got home I decided to look at mine to make sure everything was tight. I was surprised to see that in order to remove the battery the hold down bracket is nutted on the bottom of the car and only accessible if you remove the entire skid plate, unbelievable. Another observation is the battery box appears to have a place for a cover of some sort but no cover? Weird. With everything apart I decided to install remove battery connections in case I wanted to attach a battery charger or get a jump start, probably a smart move. That's all for now. Happy as can be. Great machine!
